God the Father, Creator of all things, is an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in love, holiness, justice, and grace: 

He is eternally existent in three co-equal persons: Father, Son (Jesus), and Holy Spirit. 

He has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. 

He is totally loving and completely holy.

He is all-knowing and all-powerful. 

He mindfully and mercifully concerns himself with the lives of humankind, hears and answers our prayers, and offers salvation from sin and death through His Son . . .

Jesus Christ is the only one who can restore us to God. He is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was one hundred percent God and one hundred percent man. 

He was born of a virgin,

Lived a sinless life, 

Performed miracles, 

Died on the cross for humankind,

 . . . which atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. 

The unconscionable beating and violent crucifixion of Jesus was the full, fitting payment for our sin. He rose from the dead on the third day according to Scripture, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory.

The blood Jesus Christ shed on the cross of Calvary is one hundred percent sufficient to cleanse humankind from all sin. Jesus allowed himself to be punished for our sinfulness and our sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of sin, which is death.

Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. As a result, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected. They are saved to the resurrection of life, and they are lost eternally.

Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and live inside them by His Holy Spirit. They relinquish the authority of their own lives over to Him, thus making Jesus the Lord of their lives as well as their Savior. They put their trust in what Jesus accomplished for them when He died, was buried, and rose again from the dead. 

Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures. Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. As a result, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected. 

The Bible contains all of these truths, and it is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority for determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, the Bible is authoritative, accurate, inspired, infallible and applicable to our lives.

The story of Jesus, his cross, and his grace – and much, much more – is recorded in the best selling book of all time. They are words of life and are meant to shared by Christians everywhere as commanded in the final words of Jesus, the most controversial figure of all time.
